Being a guest at Girls Group was the highlight of my week. It was so cosy, comfortable, and welcoming and I felt right at home with the girls and the wonderful facilitator. What the Comox Valley Transition Society is providing to girls in our community is invaluable, and I believe will help to successfully ‘inoculate’ our female youth against harmful media messages, as well as teach them how valuable, important, beautiful, and special they are- regardless of outside messages and/or circumstances which tell them otherwise. As a woman’s pscyhotherapist, I cannot express enough how important such work is, but I can tell you that I feel that Girls Group will prevent serious problems for these girls when they reach womanhood that I work with everyday such as: eating disorders, abusive relationships, drug and alcohol addiction, and family dysfunction. If we can prevent these serious problems from developing by offering healthier alternatives to our young women, we are definitely on the right path.
